Smothered under a Straw Stack.
Nashua, Iowa, Feb. 10.—De Witt Smith, a stock man residing one mile southeast of Nashua, was found this morning buried beneath a stack of fodder. The supposition is that while he was getting fodder for his stock the stack toppled over on him. Being unable to work his way out he was smothered to death. He was missed last night and search was made for him without result. This morning the lifeless body was found as described.
